a/s/l ACPF#6 Special: Matthew Boycott-Garnett

Remember the days of the old schoolyard? Remember when Myspace was a thing? Remember those time-wasting, laborious quizzes that everyone used to love so much? Birthday Cake For Breakfast is bringing them back! 

Every couple of weeks, an unsuspecting band (or in this case – festival organiser) will be subject to the same old questions about dead bodies, Hitler, crying and crushes.
